Oscars viewing party at ArtsQuest

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -

For many people, the Oscars are a good reason to have a party even if they don't make it all the way to Hollywood.

People gathered at ArtsQuest in Bethlehem Sunday night to take in the big show and see if their predictions were right.

Ticket sales went right back to the theater, which is trying to raise money to buy two new servers to show digital films.

"That can cost a cinema as much as $200,000," said Ryan Hill, ArtsQuest cinema director. "Our part of it -- right now, we're looking for about $50,000, because we already do have projectors."

Artsquest is hoping to have the digital conversion done by the summer.
